The Players

Thursday's Birdies and Bogeys

Who were the first round winners and losers at TPC Sawgrass? It's time to take a closer look with another edition of birdies and bogeys.

May 8, 2014
The Players Championship: J.B. Holmes

Birdie: Martin Kaymer

It was nice to see Martin Kaymer shoot a course record-tying 63 on Thursday. Since his victory at the 2010 PGA Championship and his rise to World No. 1 not long after, it's been a long, hard slog for the German, but it seems he might finally be back. Kaymer has finished T-31, T-23 and T-18 in his last three PGA Tour starts, and his 29 on the front nine made him the first player ever to break 30 over nine holes at the Players.
